How Massage Therapy Combats the Flu and Cold! Remember to receive your massage when feeling healthy.

With the Flu and cold season in effect, it is important for both children and adults to protect their immune system the most .

According to the World Health Organization

"Annually, about 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness and 290,000 to 650,000 deaths from seasonal flu occur worldwide."

When stress is reduced,  your cortisol levels decrease which has a beneficial impact on our immune systems.
